Hey guys, we're approaching the time of year that I am really excited for. Inktober!!! Which means it's time for another contest. If you remember last year Inktober is a daily prompt for art submissions. But I like to put a twist on that. Artists can be anyone who creates. Writers, Musicians, and of course, artists. Last year we had multiple winners for a member ship here on BSS.Studio, but I figure we should spice it up a little bit. We've procured many an item from the Kickstarter, so how about we Kickstart this contest. The first place prizes will be as follows

Music: A Criminal Idol CD to jam out with in the car, on a plane, during a heist (neither I nor BSS condones theft)... plus a month of silver membership

Artists: The Criminal Idol Art Book, full of detail, mystery, intrigue, and... Art! Plus a month of silver membership

Writers: A Detective Detective Plushie, never again will you have to tell stories to the air, now you have a soft figure to tell... and a month of silver membership to show off. 

Second place in all divisions will receive a silver membership. 

Here is the prompt list

This year is slightly different in that I will have a couple of other people help me decide the victors. So put your best foot forward. We're going to see what you in store. I can't wait to see what you come up with. 

Good Luck!

Day 1: Ring

I chose to vocally cover Clues to a poorman's briefcase by Static-P because of lyrical reasons. The song mentions a ring that a child and their father wear, and how those rings are special to them. Clues to a Poorman's Briefcase cover.mp3

                                                               Rings

                                                             By: Ac1d

 

       This sad and dreary sight brings back memories of a distant past thats seared into my mind. I remember the days in my grandma’s back yard when I used to play with my cousin, she would always say I need to find a girl and put a ring on her. Now that I look back on it this advice is awful. The woman I put a ring on ensnared me into a whirlpool of hatred. 

             This woman is of lackadaisical nature and is quite unsound of mind. She trapped me in her ring of lies that entangles me on my finger. She will say she loves you, but only for her heart to turn towards other men. Even if you dare speak up against this tyranny she will threaten you with ignominy beyond belief. Though I suppose im not as innocent as most would like to believe.

                    I feel as if I just want to float among the heavens and ascend into the cosmos. When I was young that was all I wanted to do, I just wanted to see those heavenly rings. Fly through the heart of Saturn and drift past the sleek but dark emptiness of Uranus. All I want to do is break this ring of pain, and explore these heavenly rings I see so often in my dreams.

                              For now though as I sit on my mound, and look at what little starlight I can see. I am at peace and feel like I can almost sleep. Maybe return to traveling the cosmos like I did when I was young.

Day 2: Mindless

For this topic I REALLY had to analyze and think about the word. the definition is acting or done without justification or concern for the consequences, and synonyms are senseless and inattentive. by thinking about those words, i started to think about a song that i have on my playlist, which is Lost in The Moment by NF. if a person is lost in a moment, they are mindless to their surroundings for the time they reflect. So because of that, i chose to do a vocal cover of Lost in the Moment by NF.

When things come to my mind they never are quite sound. Because sometimes I hear sounds from within. These voices that tell me to do atrocities come out and shout. But in my own sublime, I hold them back. These voices scream from my apartment halls but I just sigh and carry on. My name is Jack just your average bloke, besides the fact, my mind is hurt.

 

It's not always been this way you know. In the olden days, I enjoyed the snow. I quite liked that peace, but ever since the incident things have been quite different. I feel slightly dizzy and always so busy. There's a slight buzzing and a little bit of humming. But the one thing that bugs me is the voices that keep coming.

 

Even though this situation seems quite grave, there will always be another day. There is a light though small shines a little brighter each passing day. I know I can escape this pain, and soldier on to a brighter day.

Day 3: Bait 

I was excited for this day's theme, because i knew right away which song i could do. A big part of my childhood was The Nightmare Before Christmas, my siblings and i knew that movie so well that we would self-assign characters and act out the movie on a weekly basis (leaving the youngest sibling aka me with no main roles). Our best song that we recreated was the Kidnap Mr. Sandy Claws, with my sister as Shock, Brother as Locke and i would be Barrel. So in the Halloween spirit, i vocally covered Kidnap the Sandy Claws because one of Shock's line in the song are "first we're going to set some bait inside a nasty trap and wait".

     2/3/XX: Today is like the last chasing after something I will never reach. I was led like a cat with one of those toys floofy balls, except in my conundrum I am never even able to touch the ball. I am a journalist always on the chase except my chases are local tabloids. It's not bad by any means but I want more for myself something bigger. But for now, I guess ill work on my article for local cute cats, goodnight.

 

         17/5/XX: Hey sorry I haven't been available for a chat as often, things have been busy. I have landed a job at [DATA EXPUNGED] this has been hectic but I feel that thrill I always wanted. Like the other day, I was on-site reporting a protest in the downtown area. The lights the noise the environment was pulling me in and I felt alive. But I do miss having free time and being able to rest my eyes, and maybe read a good light novel. But anyways talk to you later.

 

              22/9/XX: Hey I feel like I'm breaking. I have gotten everything I have wanted, but all my friends are leaving or becoming distant. Even some of my family members have given me a cold shoulder. You won't leave me, right? Well, either way, I am moving up in my job which means I get to do more exciting stories. But anyways have a good day, I have to go back to work.

 

                       15/11/XX: Hey I need a bit of advice. Should I continue moving up in my current job, or should I quit and work for a smaller company? On the one hand, I love the thrill of chasing a big story. But on the other, I am so tired and stressed some days I call in sick so I can just lay in bed all day. Not to mention how I have barely any friends anymore, and family interaction feels cold. This tears my mind and hurts, even more, to come to an empty home. So what do you think I should do?

Day 4: Freeze

When i saw the theme was freeze, i instantly knew what song to do. i vocally covered "Freeze Your Brain" from the Musical Heathers, and i always liked this song because it's a about how amazing the corner store 7/11 is. My character JD expresses how he loves getting a brain freeze from the slushies and big gulps, while also explaining why he feels like 7/11 is a home.

Day 5: Build 

In the words of a very memorable ogre "The first thing i'm gonna do is build a ten foot wall around my land

Keeping up with this musical theater theme i have going on, i vocally covered "build a wall" from Shrek the musical. My character is Shrek who just had his heart broken the night before.  He is singing about how all of his life people avoided him, and how it was stupid of him to think that anyone would like him. So to shelter his heart and himself from the harsh world that doesn't understand him and pain, he makes it a plan to build a wall around his land so no one can interfere with him and he could live a peaceful life by himself, just how it was before. 

Also this is one of my favorite musicals so i instantly thought of this song once i saw the word was build :)

Day 6: Husky 

When i hear Husky, i instantly think about puppers! then eventually think about larger dogs and wolfs. 

So keeping up with this musical theater theme i accidentally still have going on, i vocally covered "I know things now" from the musical Into The Woods. My character is Little Red Riding hood and at this point in the story, a baker had just saved her and her granny's life by cutting open the wolf that ate them. In the song, Red admits her guilt about not listening to what her mother told her, and how meeting the wolf on the way to grannies house was an amazing experience because he made her notice the beautiful parts of the woods that she would have ignored if she stayed on her current path. then she explains her terror and experience when she gets to her grannies house and gets swallowed by the wolf, and how she was changed when the baker saved them. Red shares with the baker all of the things she learned from this experience and thanks him.
